Burgers Park Hotel Hosts A Certification Ceremony


The Burgers Park Hotel, one of the oldest and most established privately owned hotels in Pretoria, hosted a certification ceremony for 60 of their members of staff on 14 August 2014.

Derick Shafers, current Managing Director of Burgers Park Hotel, and his management team initiated a skills development programme for their valued members of staff.  The ceremony was dedicated to the late Mr W.E. Schafers, Director of Burgers Park Hotel, whose 70th birth date was also commemorated on the day.
Some members of staff have been working at Burgers Park Hotel for two to three decades. Despite the fact that many of them have never received formal tertiary education or training, they excelled at the skills training provided. This was a first of its kind for Burgers Park Hotel.
Burgers Park Hotel identified various areas within the hotel that would benefit from external training and partnered with The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy.


The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy, also situated in Pretoria, was elated to be chosen as their preferred training partner to present the skills development programmes, based on their newly launched City & Guilds of London Skills Proficiency Awards for hospitality professionals.
The City & Guilds of London Awards which were facilitated at Burgers Park Hotel are the Skills Foundation and Proficiency Awards in Basis Food Preparation as well as Basis Food and Beverage Service.


The programmes were conducted over several weeks which included on-the-job assessment of staff in their workplace environment.
Representatives of The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy participated in the certification ceremony and celebrated their achievements with all members of staff.
